Journalists, especially experienced ones, consider artificial intelligence tools to be not a threat to their profession but rather an extremely important support tool. These tools enable them to quickly access new information, identify new trends, analyze large amounts of data, and automate repetitive tasks, which helps them increase productivity and save time.

While text creation tools like ChatGPT dominate most headlines, we find that there are many suitable tools for each stage of the journalistic process, starting from collecting information, to producing visual elements, creating audio versions of written articles, and ending with the publishing process.
